Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Slow Sunday Stitching

My slow stitching continues to be done with two needles attached with a cord. I’ve gotten past the colour work chart on my Loeanneth Sweater and will shortly be dividing off for the sleeves.

I might have to get creative with the colours this one. I am going to run out of the royal blue before I run out of sweater to work on. I can either order more yarn and hope that the different dye lots don’t make too much of a difference. Or I can introduce a different design element to use a different colour. Maybe even make up my own colour work chart to transition from one to another. I have a fun skein of denim blue and an almost full skein of navy blue. I suspect I’ll try the easy way first and order more of the royal blue and hope it matches.

I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching. We may not be able to visit and stitch and sew and knit in person, but we can keep each other virtual company and share what we are doing. As long as there is yarn to knit and fabric and thread to sew, we’ll never be bored.


  1. It is beautiful! Definitely the work of a master knitter. I have no doubt that you will figure it out.

  2. Oh my, your sweater is a dream. What a clever knitter you are! I look forward to seeing what you decide upon. LOVE this knitting!

  3. Oh my goodness! The sweater looks so challenging! You are very talented. We can definitely keep each other virtual company. Happy stitching.

  4. Way beyond my skill level cant wait to see how it all turns out

  5. Oh that is a complex pattern... wow! Great job!
    Hope you find the colour you need!
    Enjoy your knitting!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
